Ultimate Bathroom DIY Guide!

Hello!

Sometimes I get projects that’re more complex than usual. Sometimes these projects use more than one of the services I offer.

Sometimes they pretty much use all of them. That’s been the case for the Bathrooms.com Ultimate Bathroom DIY Guide.

Bathrooms.com wanted to further boost their online enagement, so Dynamo PR proposed a web-based interactive guide, which would curate the best bathroom maintenance tips from the Internet to help people enhance and repair their bathroom. Dynamo PR commissioned me to design, illustrate and develop the guide.

I’ll be honest: I leapt at the chance. This was an opportunity to expand on my knowledge in responsive design, interactive web systems and comtemporary HTML5/JavaScript technology. It also give me a chance to do some nice drawing of bathroom items.

What? Some of us like drawing baths.

Anyway, through a mix of PHP (page generation based on an array of bathroom elements/tips), VBA (converting the spreadsheet of elements/tips provided by Dynamo/Bathrooms.com into PHP), HTML5/JavaScript/JQuery (the interactive Virtual Bathroom) and responsive CSS (the Tips List), I developed the guide.

Once created, I recorded and voiced the “How To” video to take users through the usage of the guide.

Bathrooms.com and Dynamo PR were delighted with the end results, and hopefully many people will benefit from the one-stop-shop of DIY tips.

Have a play now and please feel free to share it: www.bathrooms.com/ultimate-bathroom-diy-guide.

If you’re looking have a high quality interactive web-based app created then I’d love to work with you on it. Please get in touch!

Otherwise, just enjoy playing around in the guide 🙂

Tarrah for now,

MiiPC Branding

This week I was given an interesting creative task: to enhance MiiPC’s social media branding to reflect the fun, safe nature of the MiiPC, along with highlighting the wide range of games on the platform.

MiiPC, if you don’t know, is pretty cool. It’s a funky looking, Android-based PC that has safety for kids and parental control built in alongside a wide range of great apps and games. You kind find out more about it here.

I was commissioned by long time partners and all-round-awesome PR agency Dynamo PR to sort out the social branding.

Using their range of apps, beautiful device and current branding as inspiration, I created a fun, dynamic, eye catching and on-brand design for both Twitter and Facebook, which pleased Dynamo, MiiPC and their followers. Photoshop and I become closely acquainted, as often happens. 🙂
